Exceptionally skilled at the traditional sheng, Sheng Principal Guo Changsuo’s rendition of classics such as Grand Prelude simply cannot be missed; Dizi Principal Yin Zhiyang, equally at home on both xiao and dizi, performs Autumn Yearning at the Dressing Table and Partridges Flying respectively, with archaic charm. Suona/Guan Principal Jin Shiyi, will be featuring Eighteen Songs on Nomad Flute on xinguan, an innovation and brainchild by Jin and fellow SCO musician Liu Jiang. This repertoire showcases a refreshing modern take on an ancient tune.
